in recess, the first debate focused on the economy, the question of whether the obama administration intentionally misled the american people has not yet been answered. is it fair game politically and will it affect anybody vote? we continue with christine o'donnell and bill kristol and congressman forbes. are people grasping the significance of benghazi gate and paying attention to it or is the economy so paramount that it overshadows everything else? >> in virginia, a different question. not so much whether or not the administration was misleading but why we didn't provide the security that we needed for the individuals that we had there representing the united states the. secondly, it is the big concern with when they talk about how aggressive they pursued this waiting 23 days before they even get in there and get information when tv networks had the information before the united states government. but the big question we are hearing people asking across virginia is why is this an administration that is so willing to cut national defense in the united states but they won't put on
: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. will libya become a major scandal fort obama administration? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. today a house committee held hearings on the giant screwup that occurred immediately after our ambassador to libya, christopher stevens, was asassed on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton
on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton made a public statement again emphasizing the tape. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> bill: notice no mention of the possibility
was the critique leveled by paul ryan of the foreign policy of the obama administration was essentially stylistic. that the foreign policy rhetoric is insufficiently tough, that there isn't this performance of american toughness that is insufficient to paul ryan and here's a mon taj of how that sounded. >> we wouldn't refer to bashar assad as a reformer. we're not projecting weakness abroad. we shouldn't have called bashar assad a reformer. this invites weakness. >> the bashar assad a reformer. that was his only line on syria policy. largely was rhetoric kalt. now when you talk the three hot spots in the world, not necessarily in the entire world, which is iran, the war in afghanistan and syria, there wasn't as far as i can tell any policy disagreement that they were leveling. take a look. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> thank hechks we had these sanctions in place. >> what more would they do other than put american boots to the ground. >> nobody is proposing to send troops to syria. >> we are leaving in 2014, period. >> we agree with the administration o

for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
. the obama administration has decided not to defend doma. this couple was married last year after "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed. good morning to both of you and thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> good morning. >> now you have join add lawsuit challenging doma, but your case may be a little more immediate, certainly more urgent than others. charlie, tell us why. >> well, i've been recently diagnosed back in april with less than six months to live. that's been updated to 12. i'm doing really well but that's a big concern because if i were to pass away, karen wouldn't receive any of the spousal benefits, is your viever benefits that are out there. >> what type of cancer are you battling? >> breast cancer. basically stage iv breast cancer. >> charlie, our thoughts are with you. know this is a very tough battle. you got out of the military for ten years and you were typing school, right? so why did you get back in. >> i was teaching school in kentucky and in 2004 i went to a conference and i went to the a conference and was talking about how i had been in the military and a princip
stevens and three other americans is quickly moving to the forefront. the obama administration under fire for contradictions in the aftermath and questions about who knew what and when. the topic dominated much of thursday night's vice-presidential debate and it's continuing today. romney camp continuing push hard on it. >> when the prp vice president the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony of state department officials, american citizens have a right to know just what's going on. and we're going to find out. >> that was governor romney yesterday in richmond, virginia. how much of an impact will this issue have on the president's standing with regard to foreign policy. he's a surrogate for the obama cam paper. do appreciate you spending part of your afternoon with us, sir. >> great being back on here, buddy. >> a lot of con nutrition, a lot of second-guessing about what happened in benghazi. here's what republican congressman darrell issa had to say earlier. take a listen. >> they repeatedly warned washington officials about dangerous situation in libya. inst
to iraq. we had the same position before the withdrawal was we agreed with the obama administration. let's have a status of forces agreement to make shiewrp we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiation by president obama and they failed to get agreement. we don't have an agreement because they fail to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau, but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. with respect to afghanistan the 2014 deadline, we agree with the 2014 transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but, unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unravel other of the obama foreign policy which is making the more chaotic and us less safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the midd
have been foreclosed on during the bush administration, not the obama administration. i would love to talk about facts, but maybe you're just a little bit disingenuous on your backs. -- on your facts. guest: the word liar is a harsh word. we talked about trying to find commonality here. what i will say about it romney, having been around him a great deal, is a man of great faith and strong family and strong family values. if given the opportunity, i know he will leave the country with honesty and integrity. we might disagree with his policies. i disagree with the president and certainly some of his policies, but i certainly try not to question his motives or goals or why he does what he does. i would hope the voters would hope both sides can return stability to this process, and maybe not to be quite as divided. but fight, argue, in debate, but i hope it is fair at the end of the day and able to move forward as a country. host: republican on the line. supporter of mitt romney. -- robert hagan from ohio and jay hottinger, thank you for joining us. a month not to go. we're in early v
't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit with secretary clinton. she is on record several times as saying the violence was caused by the video, famously, ambassador rice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there is consistency, it appears to be in the rear side of the state department, saying from the get-go that it was a terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the procedure. you were an ambassador, he worked for the state department, you were a member of the president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get different information and perhaps that happened here? >> yes, well, i was not a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabinet officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obvious
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi
by the obamas administration. i do not know if you suggest it, but you said straight out that the obama administration had manipulated it. then you change your tune a little bit. what usually happens over time is that some of these things even out. we are unlikely to see another sharp drop-off in the unemployment rate. another issue that appears to be true is that we are near a low level of people in terms of those participating in the work force. and it went up last month, but it is near a 30-year low. there are still aspects of the job market that are still weak. the unemployment rate is still obviously very high. he had a lot of interesting things to say, but the "wall street journal", it was a bit different from the tweet he put out. host: mr. nardone, what is the bls response to what jack welch wrote? guest: the response to the idea that somebody in the white house called us up and told us that the unemployment rate needed to be 7.8%, that is simply not true. it did not happened. if it did happen, the folks that work on these numbers, they would be the ones the sending out a tweet.

, the obama administration knew within one day it was likely terrorism. fox news learning patrick f. kennedy, a top aide to secretary of state hillary clinton, gave a briefing to congressional aides calling it a sophisticated and complex attack. >>> overnight, north korea warning the united states, you are within range of our missiles. this in response to a deal south korea made with america. it allows south korea to nearly triple the range of its missiles. north korea says it's prepared to counter any threat. >>> new developments in the case of that murdered american jet skier. mexican marines arrested this man, salvador martinez, escovedo, alleged drug cartel leader, believed to be responsible for the death of david hartley. he was killed in 2010 while jet skiing with his wife on falcon lake. she says the arrest raises even more questions about his death. >> i don't believe that he pulled the trigger. i believe it's probably he either said yes, go ahead, or he had something to do with the guys who are behind it. >> gretchen: it's believed he killed 50 people with his own hands and ordered
in the same way. >> gretchen: why would the obama administration come up against that. if you look at the polls, military people usually vote republican. - >> they are trying to keep people who will vote for governor romney and congressman ryan for doing so. this is a generalization and probably true with respect to the military. i don't know the outcome. my prediction that the supreme court will not hear this. you have the weekend in which to vote. you have saturday, monday and special tuesday. and the extra day gone. >> steve: you are gone, too. andrew napolitano thank you. you watch the yankees last night? >> brian: they lost and there will be a game tonight. >> unfortunatelyy lost two. >> gretchen: and that's how we end the segment. judge, how desperate is the obama campaign? mitt romney hates kids? you got to hear this. >> brian: italian captain arrested after leaving the passengers for dead. >> steve: he needs something to do. ♪ ♪ ♪ you got the music in you. ♪ ♪ nature valley trail mix bars are made with real ingredients you can see. like whole roaed nuts, chewy gra
what it's telling the obama administration. let's listen. >> as they learn more facts about exa what happened, they changed their assessment. that's why there is also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years, who is doing investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> and they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> we hear the pronoun he's using, it is we. many of the -- many agree the bo bone of contention is the we were not told the u.s. diplomats needed more security before the fatal attack on september 11th. romney didn't say which state department official that be with. he didn't say specifically which testimony. let's start with that. can you discern what romney was talking about when he said biden contradicted that sworn testimony? >> well, i would say number one that is probably a reference to eric nordstrom, who was the regional security officer, that means he works for the state
in this election. we can elect somebody who does not have a plan, will be an echo of the obama administration. or somebody who will continue to be an independent voice for arizona. i would appreciate your vote. >> thank you for your opening statements. let's fine tune things a little bit here. why you and not him? >> happy to have the opportunity. no, my life has been one that has been best exemplified by the infrastructure of opportunity that this nation has. i am a high-school dropout from an immigrant family. i have prospered because of this great infrastructure of opportunity in our nation. i have been able to serve my country as a physician, a police officer, as a professor, as a teacher. and doing all of those things has allowed me to appreciate how great this nation is. what i want to do is make sure we can preserve this infrastructure of opportunity so every kid can get that american dream. >> what you and not him? >> that is exactly it. that opportunity will not exist unless we get a hold of this $16 trillion debt. that is why we have to have somebody who has a record, who is willing
the withdrawal which was we agreed with the obama administration. let's make sure we secure our gains. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama, and he failed to get the agreement. we don't have a set of forces agreement because today failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things we have fought so hard to get. and with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with the transition, but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad, and that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy which is making the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> moderator: i just want to talk to you about right in the middle of the crisis, governor romney -- and you're talking about this agai
. they're asking the obama administration to take down the ad. >> steve: they're taking fire because mitt romney brought it up in the debate where if -- he said i love you jim, but i'm not big on funding pbs and things like that. and a lot of the country feels like why do we actually contribute millions and millions of dollars to public broadcasting? well, michelle obama was in virginia outside of washington, d.c. yesterday. she is pro-big bird. mitt romney was talking yesterday he is against government subsidizing public broadcasting. here they both are. >> we believe in keeping our priorities straight. we all know good ask well that cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> food stamps, when the president took office, 32 million people on food stamps. now there are 47 million people on food stamps. these are tough times with real serious issues. so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird.

.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the relevant in the room, both catholics disagree with the school teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu
of the obama administration officials to condemn the attack and mourn the death of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans but as the state department has weathered the republican-led criticism of the warning signs before the september 11th attack, clinton has been invisible. clinton will not appear the oversight hearing on the libya attack where they've said they will question the state department security preparations and the administration's account of the attack. the state department plans to the interest in their career with other officials. ahead of the hearing they provided new details about the attack or asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the same assault. and as we read in the "the washington times" earlier, the report that the state department according to them took away any claims that this attack was due to the protest about that video to read that is the front page of the "the washington times" this morning. they also in case you are interested include a brief chronology of the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya if
seemed to be of what the obama administration had done in the past, calling us either a reformer, a not coming out more strongly in favor possess the rebels. i think it i it is really hard r the -- and that is what was surprising to me about the debate, how -- when they have so little difference, really on foreign policy, on some of the key issues, the fact that paul ryan managed to get joe biden sounding so defensive over libya and what martha is suggesting they are going to carry on talking about libya over the next week or so and that mitt romney did it again today, you know, suggests to me they think they have got something here that shows mitt romney as a leader, as a commander in chief. >> it also, they had a planned answer on libya, which they didn't quite fully execute but it is supposeto go this way which is to say the campaign, the .. campaign suggested, a member of the obama campaign suggested this wouldn't be such a bi bigg deal if mitt romney ad ryan didn't bring it up, it is an excuse, first it is the film and we didn't get the right intelligence and now it is the r
